Channellock, Inc. Introduces Must-Have TG-1 Plier Set
Meadville, Pa. - May 17, 2004 - CHANNELLOCK® revolutionized the hand tool industry when it invented the tongue and groove plier design in 1933. And it was the handy CHANNELLOCK® #420 that started it all more than 70 years ago. Now the original tongue and groove plier has been paired with one of its big brothers - the #440 - in the new TG-1 gift set. This must-have set is sure to please professional hand tool users and knowledgeable do-it-yourselfers everywhere.
Versatility is the key to this set's appeal. The #420 is 9½" (240 mm) in length, with five adjustments and a 1½" (38 mm) maximum jaw capacity. The #440 is 12" (300 mm) in length, with seven adjustments and a maximum jaw capacity of 2½" (57 mm). Both pliers feature right-angled teeth for maximum gripping power in all directions. The patented undercut tongue and groove design prevents the jaws from slipping out of adjustment during use. The time proven PermaLock® fastener will not break or become loose like traditional nut and bolt assemblies. An exclusive feature of these hard working pliers is the patented reinforcing edge that provides increased strength and durability under heavy work loads. CHANNELLOCK BLUE® comfort grips don't just look good - they make working with these pliers easier on the hands as well.
Every toolbox should contain both the CHANNELLOCK® #420 and #440. The new TG-1 gift set is the perfect way to make sure it does.
